tuit,tui & tut





These ROOT-WORDS are TUT, TUIT & TUI which come from the Latin tueri & tuitus which mean TO PROTECT & TO GUARD and from that comes the meaning TO TEACH. With the addition of the Prefix IN which, as you know, means NOT, a new concept comes into the word, INTUITion, learning without instruction. How wonderful it would be to get all knowledge by INTUITion! If the multiplication tables were in TUITable?
